Named the state flower of Montana in 1895, the Bitterroot was long prized in the region as a source of beauty and nourishment, and as a symbol of resilience. A low growing plant capable of living for more than a year without water, it's blossoms of pale pink to rose delight the eye of passers by in late spring. Indigenous peoples harvested and ate the taproot as a delicacy, and some believed it to prevent bear attacks.
The bitterroot dress, made of Organic Cotton and Hemp chambray, was designed with beauty and resilience in mind. It's features include:
-Silver buttons down the front and at the sleeve stays
-Deep pockets for the bitterroot you harvest along your journey
-Tucks along the shoulder for modest accentuation of the feminine form
-Three quarter length sleeves, so you can dig in the dirt without soiling your vestment.
note: The length of the skirt can be customized.
